MBK: Spad31: O RRY? You're going to have to explain in detail why.

Because the hospital is making health care decisions based on race.  They are telling her, because she is black, she is not qualified to take care of the child.


Do you have any evidence that black people ARE qualified to take care of children?

Make racism illegal, seriously.  Its time to just end that bullshiat and let everyone get on with the future.  Make it illegal, imprison idiots who are blatant about it.  And make damn sure your black president is the one to sign the order, just for the lulz.

I'm tired of these racist dirtbag northerners ruining it for the rest of the country. Get your shiat together, north.

If the northern states can't be trusted to reign in the racism of their people and institutions, the northern states should be forcibly sterilized for the good of America.

GreenAdder: They exist in Michigan. Most of them are stealth bigots. These are people who seem fine, until one day something happens on the news. Suddenly you get an earful about their opinions on an ethnicity, gender, religion, etc.  I assume this is like any other state, really.

This is a special case. Here's a guy with a swastika tattoo, and he chooses to live in one of the most diverse cities in Michigan. This is like hating Macbooks and working at Starbucks. My only hope is that the baby grows up to realize his parents are full of it.


Actually, this surprised me a bit.  Not that there are racists around, but him even letting his kid be born at Hurley.  We're not talking barely on the edge of Flint, we're talking downtown less than a mile from MLK part of Flint.  This guy is most likely from Burton and so it surprises me he didn't go to Genesis Hospital in Grand Blanc.  Would be the same distance from him, although Hurley does have a better staff for more severe cases.  They don't call it Burtucky for nothin'.

They kind of did make a comeback, in that they were accused of planning to overthrow the US government and arrested.  The judge acquitted them last year because, well, the people in the mugshots don't really represent a serious threat to the USA.

Lochsteppe: Karac: 

I don't think HIPAA would apply to the nurse - she's part of the organization providing the health care.  It'd be like saying your doctor can't tell his receptionist to schedule you for a prostate exam.

Unless she's hot and I don't want her knowing I've got a bum prostate.



Where the hell else would you keep it?

See, people!  Trolling isnt a bad thing.  It provokes wit from the right people.  Im not actually racist.  It's just that black people suck.  Luckily though, they attack each other WAY more, and they don't travel well.  I'm safe up here in NE.  FOR NOW.....

Because the hospital is making health care decisions based on race.  They are telling her, because she is black, she is not qualified to take care of the child.

No, they aren't they are telling her that, they are telling her that they are accommodating a parent of a juvenile patient.  It's not any stupider than the people who think they will go to hell if they get a blood transfusion.
.


We do the same with muslim women and male doctors all the time.  Of course we let them know that it isna favor and that if the shiat fits the fan and only a male anesthesiologist is available they gotta deal with it. The I don't see where the woman has grounds to sue unless they sent her home early without pay or if they gaave her a crappier nursing assignment (ie instead of neonatal care she was sent to do manual disimpactions of nursing home admits). You actually have to prove damages, which I. don't see any in this case.

Bit'O'Gristle: Ed Grubermann: Bit'O'Gristle: A nurse is suing a Michigan hospital for allegedly acquiescing to a man's race-based request that no African-Americans be involved in his baby's care.

The lawsuit accuses managers at Hurley Medical Center in Flint of reassigning Tonya Battle based on the color of her skin.

/Ok, sure, that is a asshole move on managements part, but you are their employee, the customer is who's paying, and you go where they tell you to go. it's not like you lost money or got laid off or were demoted. Just because you don't like the reason they moved you, doesn't mean its against the law, or you're going to be able to cash in. Nice try though, come back later if you actually have a valid discrimination complaint that cost you money.

And another ethically challenged dimwit joins the fray.

/LOL so i guess I'm free to sue the local city i live by for lowering the test scores for minorities on the police exams, where i as a white male have to score much higher to get the job.  That's not racism is it?  I mean, it only counts to blacks right?  I as a white male can't be discriminated against by them bending over to the NAACP and ACLU by making it much easier for minorities to get a job there, whereas i have to score on the test like farking Einstein.  fark her, she got moved, she didn't lose any money, and they have the right to choose who works on their kids, no matter how farked up the reason.  Is it racist? Of course it is. However, it's their right to be backwards ass rednecks and pick who they want working on their kid. But i guess i as a white male can't be discriminated, for if i say i have, that makes me a racist. Whatever.


Yes yes its really hard being a white male in modern america (well anytime in history ever)...  cry moar

Spad31: cman: Spad31: Uh...so what? Someone is suing because they weren't allowed to handle an infant? Really? Who gives a shiat what reasons the parents had? They're not required to explain their preferences. So they may have bigoted reasons...big deal. Racism happens across every culture. Get the fark over it. It doesn't have to ruin your day.

Someone is suing because the hospital should have shown balls and stood up to these assholes.

O RRY? You're going to have to explain in detail why.
